Gilmoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfect start

Stephanie Gilmore got the most out of the testing conditions on Saturday to win her third Rip Curl Pro title.

Photos: ERIK HOLT

REIGNING world champion Stephanie Gilmore maintained her perfect start to the season with a comfortable Rip Curl Pro victory on Saturday. Gilmore, who lost last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rip Curl Pro final to Silvana Lima, proved too strong throughout â&#x20AC;&#x201C; showing the form that has taken her to the last three world titles. Gilmoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 14.67 to 10.00 victory over Peruâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sofia Mulanovich was her third Bells title in just four attempts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a bit overwhelmed by this,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To ring the bell once is an amazing feeling, but three times? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the gravity of it has

sunk in yet. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an incredible event and I feel very fortunate to have achieved such success here so far.â&#x20AC;? Although she struggled to find form and rhythm in the opening two rounds, Gilmore did enough to progress and come the finals she was far too strong. Her quarter final victory over Rebecca Woods saw her notch a remarkable 17.34. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in a hurry,â&#x20AC;? Gilmore said of the early rounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably not the most exciting frame of mind for the spectators, but I know that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t totally count until the final, so that was my game plan and I guess it kind of worked for me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve used for a lot of events and it seems to work.â&#x20AC;?

Having collected two wins from two events in 2010, Gilmore now has a commanding lead as she hunts down a fourth ASP womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world crown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two for two is definitely an unexpected start of the year but I guess when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really expecting too much thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when it all just comes your way,â&#x20AC;? Gilmore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winning the world title is such an incredible feeling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite rare so while I can, I just might as well keep winning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it does take a lot of energy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it really draws a lot of energy out of you. When you come to the end of the year, everybody wants a piece of your time and it can be quite intense, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that I enjoy. I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I just kind of cruise throughout the year and then at the end of the year, I want that big climax.â&#x20AC;? 2004 world champion, Mulanovich, surfed exceptionally well throughout the day despite suffering from a neck injury she picked up in round 3. The fleet-footed Peruvianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Runner-Up finish is good enough to vault her to the world No. 2 spot heading into the third event of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not at my 100 per cent but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just stoked to make it to the finals,â&#x20AC;? Mulanovich said. Chelsea Hedges, the 2005 world champion, looked the form surfer of the event in the early rounds until falling to Mulanovich in the semi-finals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m disappointed. Heats donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get much closer than that,â&#x20AC;? Hedges said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt like I was on a roll after Margaretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s [Margaret River] and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappointing to feel good here and lose a heat like that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That said, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just try to shake it off and concentrate on New Zealand.â&#x20AC;?

The best job in the world BY NATHAN HALE ARE THERE any better jobs in the world than being a judge on the ASP World Tour? Not according to the tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head judge, Richard Porta. While he may have to put up with the odd surfer hissy-fit, the first year menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tour head judge said seeing the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best surfers in action in exotic worldwide locations is more than compensatory. And with a new rotation system for the judges introduced this season, Porta is more than happy with his current role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty hectic schedule, but we have a great panel of judges with plenty of experience,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surfing has changed in all manners over the last x-many years, with everything changing except the judging. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we decided to get progressive this year and we now have three head judges for each event, who work on a rotational basis throughout each day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will act as a judging manager â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for want of a better word â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and will be involved with the surfers and the admin side of things during the day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will still oversee judging for a session, then another head judge will come in for the middle session and then another for the last session. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This gives the head judge a chance to have

a break and refresh themselves a little throughout the day. It also means we get a chance to be a scoring judge throughout the day.â&#x20AC;? So while the thousands of spectators were forced to look for alternative action during last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lay days, Porta and his crew were happy for something that resembled a break. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some people it was there first break in 23 days,â&#x20AC;? Porta said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It had been manic, so it was a chance to catch our breath a little.â&#x20AC;? With the tour getting bigger and bigger each year, the prizemoney increasing as well as the lucrative sponsorships on offer, there is bound to be disagreements between surfers and the judges. Porta acknowledges this but described the interaction as constructive conversation rather than dummy spits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a subjective sport, and when you lose by the narrowest margin you are going to get people come and question you,â&#x20AC;? Porta said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some surfers will come and ask or want to know why they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the score they thought they should have. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course, sometimes people get passionate and get upset and tempers flare. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we usually have a good process we go through with the surfers where we manage to work through any issues they have. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our job is to make sure that at the end of the day

Richard Porta with seven-time womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world champion, Layne Beachley, at the Surf Coast Shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s civic welcome. Photo: PETER MARSHALL

the right guy progresses.â&#x20AC;? Porta, a former high-class amateur competitor, has been on the ASP judging panel since 1996 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and has spent the past four of those years as head judge of the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tour. His progression to menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tour head judge has been the culmination of years of hard work and dedication. The team he now heads includes judges from varying backgrounds and countries such as Spain,

South Africa, the United States. And, just like Porta, all current judges are former top-class surfers in their own right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People often ask where is the best place we tour. I just say it is wherever I am at that moment,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am from the Mornington Peninsula, so I am quite familiar with Bells and it is a special placeâ&#x20AC;Ś it definitely holds a special place in surfersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hearts and also the judges.â&#x20AC;?

Can Parko join the fab four? JOEL Parkinson remains confident he has what it takes to become just the fifth surfer to win back-to-back Rip Curl Pro titles. Parkinson, whose victory last year added to his 2004 success, is well aware that history shows just how hard it is to defend your title at Bells Beach. Only Michael Peterson (1973, ’74 and ’75), Mark Richards (1978, ’79 and ’80), Sunny Garcia (1995 and ’96) and Andy Irons (2002 and ’03) have successfully defended their Bells title. He also doesn’t need any reminding that there are a host of rivals eager to take the honour from him of ringing that beloved bell. A fifth placing in the opening leg of this year’s tour – the Quiksilver Pro at Snapper Rocks – pleased the 28-year-old. “I was actually really happy with the way I surfed at Snapper,” Parkinson said. “I just had the misfortune of walking into Dane (Reynolds) in that heat. The one thing I really worked on last year was consistency and not having bad heats. “I lost at Snapper, but I didn’t have a bad heat. That averages out in your favour over the course of a whole season… you’ll win more of those heats than you’ll lose.” Parkinson’s rapport with the roping right-handers is near unrivaled among his peers and over a decade of experience at the break will serve him well against the tour’s top 45 surfers. “Having a good run here last year doesn’t count for much this year.” Parkinson said. “That said, I never really feel too much pressure paddling out at Bells, it’s one of those places that’s always felt like a home away from home. “It’s the kind of wave that takes you a few years to get your head around. It’s a wave I’ve surfed since I was 14 and a wave I love.” Despite Parkinson’s comfort level at the venue, the Australian powerhouse is quick to recognise Bells’ ability to shake things up amongst the world’s best surfers. “I think anyone who’s won before out there will be the favourites, for sure,” Parkinson said. “There are a lot of multiple winners when you look at that trophy. But in saying that, the event always throws up a surprise contender, and at Bells, it’s often the guy you least expect – look at Robbo [Adam Robertson] last year. “He was a wildcard, but he was a guy who knew that wave intimately

and he made the final as a result.” Robertson last week repeated his wildcard effort of 12 months ago, as he secured a passage into the 48-man field, where he will take on fellow Aussies Bede Durbidge and Adrian Buchan in the opening heat. Nine-time world champion, Kelly Slater, posted some of the highestscoring waves in the opening event of the year in Queensland, but had his run halted in the quarter finals. A three-time winner at Bells (1994, 2006 and 2008), Slater admitted

he was tentative at times, but is keen to add to his record here. “It wasn’t the result I’d love to start with based on how I started the event,” Slater said of his Quiksilver Pro result. “I was tentative on my buckled board against Jordy and you just can’t make those choices in those situations. “I’m feeling pretty good overall with my surfing, though I struggle with focus sometimes when I see friends off tour getting such good waves!” The Rip Curl Pro will be webcast live at www.live.ripcurl.com

We didn’t want to be In an exclusive one-on-one interview, Rip Curl co-founder Doug Warbrick talks to Nathan Hale about the early struggle to make the company successful, the establishment of a professional surfing tour, and what it means to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. THE SIMPLE urge to be able to spend spare time surfing and not tied to an office desk every day played a key role in establishing what is now the pre-eminent surfing brand in the world. When Rip Curl co-founders Doug Warbrick and Brian Singer decided there was much more to life than sitting behind a desk all day, little could they have imagined the empire they would build over the ensuing four decades. Now, as the Rip Curl brand remains synonymous with the world’s most iconic pro tour event, Warbrick remembers it was not all plain sailing in the early days. “Our main motivation when setting up the company was just to have enough money to be able to get by while we surfed and to have some flexi-time when we wanted,” Warbrick recalled. “We didn’t want to be in the 9-5 routine, so we did what we could to get things up and running. “It wasn’t easy… in the early days it was pretty much hand-to-mouth. “We were financing raw materials, trying to build up our stock and equipment and it was a challenge trying to finance the business. “But that was the basis of growing the business

“We did have some glimpses of what was ahead, and we certainly had a sense that we were growing the company and a brand.”

and growing the brand – to be able to enjoy ourselves and surf. “We couldn’t foresee decades into the future. We were only going from day to day and week to week to make it work.

Apart from growing a brand that is instantly recognised worldwide, Warbrick was also instrumental in taking the Bells Rally – as it was known – professional in 1973. Since Michael Peterson won the first of his three successive bells in ’73, the support from touring professionals has been overwhelming. Subsequently, and underlining the esteem the event is held in, the honour roll reads as a who’s who of professional surfing. “The Bells Rally – the original event – was started in 1962 and it had already been running for 11 years when we, together with Australian Surfing Association Victoria took the event pro,” Warbrick said. “Back then it was actually called the Rip Curl Pro Surfing Championships, and next year we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the contest.”

A major factor behind the Rip Curl Pro’s initial success, Warbrick’s involvement in surfing transcends many levels. Apart from his involvement with Rip Curl and the eponymous event, Warbrick – or ‘Claw’ as he is affectionately known – was an original member of the Australian Surfing Association (now Surfing Australia) and was a committee member and vice-president of Surfing Victoria in the 1960s and ’70s. He was also a founding member of the ASP World Tour and the Surfrider Foundation. All of these commitments aided his recent induction into the sport’s Hall of Fame – something that is still sinking in more than six weeks later. “It is not something you ever aim for, but it is a great honour to be recognised,” Warbrick said. “Myself and Brian [Singer] have had such a long involvement in surfing, and in my case it is an honour to be among this esteemed and elite group of outstanding surfers. “My major contribution hasn’t been surfing – it has been on other levels – but there are also a lot of other people in the Hall of Fame who have made broader contributions out of the water.”

that, but I do have the intention to get out every day and I manage to do that most days,” he said. “I am just happy to be in the water and I still enjoy being out there and feeling the energy of the ocean. “I am not trying to get to the top of the pecking order in the line-up or anything like that. “I enjoy being able to get a wave and I really like the camaraderie of being out there with other surfers. “Bells will always be one of my favourite destinations and places to surf... it is just that sort of place that draws you in and keeps you coming back for more and more.”

Evolution of the tour

Having been an integral part of the world tour for the past four decades, Warbrick is arguably the most qualified person to comment on its evolution – and current direction. From the raw days of the professional tour right through to today’s live webcast streaming, bigdollar sponsorships and corporate clout, Warbrick has seen it all – and he likes what he sees. “Surfing has continued to evolve and improve at a fairly steady rate… the performance level from the surfers elevates each year,” he said. “One of the main differences is obviously the media; with the live webcasts now and the live coverage from the electronic media, as well as the print media coverage. “I think the ASP should be rightly proud of the tour. They have a great structure and are a comprehensive organisation that now runs competitions pretty much throughout the 12 months of the year. “The prizemoney continues to go up and we have a great product which is very well presented.” Although Warbrick now calls the Gold Coast – Currumbin, to be exact – home, the magic of Bells Beach, Torquay and the Surf Coast still holds a special place in his heart. For more than four decades he called the Surf Coast home, and each year the pilgrimage to Bells – as well as other visits for business – ensures Warbrick never loses touch with his spiritual home. “I love the town of Torquay, and I just love the geography and power of the ocean at Bells,” he said. “I don’t have to be surfing. Just to see those powerful cliffs and feel the power of the ocean… I just enjoy going out and watching people surf.”

ill in the water St Time to celebrate

Having successfully achieved his ambition of being able to build a business while indulging his passion for surfing, Warbrick is still a regular out on the water.

Whether it is a trip to Bells, surfing his home waves on the Gold Coast or venturing to any of the tour’s worldwide stopovers, Warbrick could not imagine being out of the water for an extended period of time. “I try and surf every day. I may not always achieve

By next week, when new champions are crowned, the sand will hardly have settled when thoughts will look toward 2011 – and the 50th anniversary of the Rip Curl Pro as we now know it. Half a century of surfing royalty – past and present – will converge on Bells for the celebrations. Memories will be relived, friendships rekindled, but above all, a mutual admiration and respect for the iconic event and venue will be prevalent. Warbrick, for one, cannot wait. “I started the Easter pilgrimage in 1963 and it is a pretty strong habit,” he said. “For almost 50 years the event has been at Bells and it is kind of a meeting of the tribe where you find surfers from throughout the history of modern surfing. “And with next year’s 50th anniversary it will be a fabulous cultural meeting.” A meeting of culture, class and respect – something the Rip Curl Pro epitomises.

A SIMPLE philosophy is working wonders for Aireys Inlet’s surf life saving champ, Susan Reilly. Fresh from winning three gold medals at last month’s Australian Surf Life Saving Championships at Kurrawa on the Gold Coast, Reilly said there is no hidden secret to her success. “There is not a lot to it… I just try and burst out of the blocks and reach the finish line first,” she said. The plan might sound simple, but plenty of people have had trouble emulating Reilly’s success. At the Gold Coast she took home national gold medals in the one-kilometre run, the one-kilometre beach sprint and the flags event. A member of the Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club, Reilly is already a world Masters champion after she won a gold medal in Germany two years ago, and she will be looking to add to that tally later this year at the World Masters Games in Egypt. Reilly is a well-known masseuse in Aireys Inlet, and attributes her success to regular daily exercise, maintaining a healthy diet, surfing and – most importantly – enjoying what she does.

Susan sprints to victory in the one-kilometre beach sprint at the recent Australian titles.

Despite her success on the Gold Coast, the 60-year-old was quick to heap praise on her fellow Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club representatives. “The real heroes were the Fairhaven boaties,” she said. “They were coming home for gold when their

boat capsized. Three of the men managed to get back into the boat and they crossed the line to win a silver medal.” For more information on the Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club, phone 5289 6275 or visit www.fairhavenslsc.org

Get set for a rich harvest ONE OF the most influential indigenous songwriters and performers will be appearing at Harvester Moon this Friday. Fresh from launching a 10th solo album earlier this year, Neil Murray will bring his brilliant show to the Bellarine, where he will be accompanied by John Bedgegood on keys/mandolin and accordion. Murray describes his album, Witness, as a precise look through his eyes at what he sees around him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At a basic level, everything I write is a result of what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen, heard and felt,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I aim to be clear. I aim to be accurate. The songs are my testimony.â&#x20AC;? Murray first appeared in the early 1980s as a founding member of the Warumpi Band, which, over three albums and 20 years of performing helped make contemporary indigenous music heard in mainstream Australia. The formation also yielded such classic songs as Blackfella Whitefella and My Island Home â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the 1995 APRA song of the year that was performed by Christine Anu at the closing ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Murray is one of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most original and respected songwriters and has enjoyed a solo career since 1989. His songwriting palette is broad â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from the rollicking Good Light in Broome, the prayerful Native Born, the busking roots of Long Grass Band and the journeyman monologue Lights of Hay. Collectively his work describes an inner landscape to the heart and soul of Australia. Longtime friend and founding Midnight Oil

member, Jim Moginie, was enlisted to help produce his latest offering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I respect Jimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s judgment. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played on a lot of my records now and it was just easy,â&#x20AC;? Murray said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had a studio and we just picked out the songs and went for it. A bonus was One of Those Tunes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; our first co-write. It taps the dilemma of trying to remain true to oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s self yet still give audiences what they want.â&#x20AC;? In 2005 Murray received an environmental achievement award by the Glenelg-Hopkins Catchment Management Authority in western Victoria for his efforts in instigating â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Healing Walksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; along watercourses in the region and for being the inspiration behind establishment of the annual Lake Bolac Eel Festival. And his respect and feel for the land continues to shine through in his songs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as it always has done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Burning Land is the impact of February 7, 2009,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was not in the fires, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen such an apocalyptic day. I was out in the western district and I was shocked at the ferocity of the weather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Something was definitely amiss. You could sense something bad was gonna happen.â&#x20AC;? Murray will play three sets throughout the evening at Harvester Moon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at 8.15pm, 9.15pm and 10.15pm â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with tickets priced at $45 for dinner and the show. Harvester Moon is located at 2320 Portarlington Road, Bellarine. For more information, phone 5259 3200 or visit www.harvestermoon.com.au

I MUST admit I’ve been leaning towards tighter styled reds of late due, in part, I guess to the last gasps of summer and the beautifully mild conditions of my favourite month – March (and yes, I’m a Pisces too!). However, I was blown away recently when I tried (quite by chance) the new Cabernet Sauvignon from McLaren Vale winery Chapel Hill. To be honest, I haven’t really taken much interest in this winery over the last few years, not for any particular reason mind you, but this wine has certainly put them on my radar big time. It shows the skill, experience and deft touch of talented winemaker Michael Fragos’ style coming to the fore since taking over the reins in 2005. Shiraz and Grenache (in my humble view) are champions of the McLaren Vale region as both varieties are ideally suited to the Mediterranean-style climate, with Cabernet taking somewhat of a back seat – some might say they’re just not ‘cool’! However, when conditions allow the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to develop to their optimum levels of flavour, colour, and tannin, the results can be quite spectacular. The 2007 vintage was bone dry – the driest on record in fact. But due to the fortuitous geography of the McLaren Vale region, the vines were able to rest and refresh during the night as the temperatures were cooler than normal. This allowed the grapes to ripen steadily as there were no real extreme days to hasten ripeness or ‘burn’ the grapes. Thus, the grapes achieved a more desirable spectrum of flavours and characters. If you’re into cabernets, try this.

THE BEACH HOTEL

Art studio is making its mark in Winchelsea DESPITE having been open for just under six months, Winchelsea’s Riverlee Art Studio has already made a big impression on the community. Housing works from eight local artists, the studio and gallery is one of the most popular weekend attractions for locals and visitors alike. Sandra Jones opened the studio in October last year in a bid to support local artists and showcase their works. “We opened up on October 10 last year and I have been very pleased with the response so far,” Jones said. “It is something I have always wanted to do. I did have groups coming over to my property to do some work but to have a gallery and studio in town is great. “We have a community of artists and this is a great area for them to show off their works.” The artists on display at the moment include Jill Treloar, Jacinta Bishop, Faye Gibson, Veronica McDonald, James Jacobs, Damian McDonald, Bev Baker and Karina Hunt. All artists, except for Hunt, who is from Geelong, are Winchelsea based.

The studio and gallery will also host workshops later in the year, where Jones will be able to utilise her teaching talents. “We are really looking forward to doing the workshops later in the year,” she said. “We have a few things happening – such as exhibitions as well – so it is an exciting time for us.” The studio is open on weekends between 10am4pm and on Tuesday from 10am-2pm. For further information, phone Sandra Jones on 0429 368 287. Meanwhile, for a complete day out, look no further than Barwon Park, located just outside of Winchelsea. Apart from housing the historic mansion, Barwon Park also accommodates the Courtyard Gallery, which is a community arts space facilitated by Winchelsea Creative Arts Network (WeCAN). WeCAN is a network of people with varied interests in the creative arts. Barwon Park is open on Wednesdays and Sundays from 11am-4pm, with admission prices $8 for adults, $6 for concession, $4 for children and $20 for a family ticket.

Chapel Hill McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon

Rich and plush were my initial reactions when trying this wine. In the glass, the colour is typically dark and the aromatics suggest dark plums, cherry and a hint of spicy oak. The rich, complex fruit flavours all marry well and show beautiful balance and a lush mouth-feel that lingers long. I revisited this wine on the third night after opening the bottle with just over half left, and behold, it had fully fleshed out and was incredibly flavoursome, soft and oh so smooth – perfect for watching the footy! The tannins are fine, tight and well structured, suggesting this will age well over the next five to seven years.

THE BEACH HOTEL

See it live at Anglesea BY NATHAN HALE

SOME of the Surf Coast’s finest amateur performers have booked their spots at the Anglesea Live concert to be held later this month. Now in its ninth year, Anglesea Live is an event open to all ages and abilities and will be held on Friday, April 23 at the Anglesea Hotel, starting at 7pm. The event is organised by a dedicated committee, headed by Karren Stoneham. “The event came about because I wanted a platform for bands and young people to perform,” she said. “Over the years it has proven really popular and within a week of putting posters up this year we were booked out with acts.” The committee is planning on holding three events this year – with the second already penciled in for June and the third to be held on a date

to be confirmed. A stage will be set up in the function room of the Anglesea Hotel, where bands or solo performers, will be given between 15 and 30 minutes to perform. Renowned blues and roots performer, Chris Wilson, has been confirmed as special guest for the night, and he will play two sessions in between the other acts. Stoneham said that while local performers are very much targeted, the event is open to all musicians, with one of the features of the evening being the wide-ranging musical genres. “It is a really diverse evening… you get lots of different ages and musical tastes,” she said. “We have a student bands section, a soloist section and an adult bands section, so everyone is catered for.” The evening is a not-for-profit event, with tickets available at the door for just $5, with food and drink available.

“We have a small, hard-working committee which makes this happen every year and the event has been well accepted by the community,”

Stoneham said. For more information on the evening, visit www.anglesealive.com. au

A production not to be missed TORQUAY Theatre Troupeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of The Scottish Play is just days away. The production, written by Graham Holliday and directed by Maryanne Doolan, will make its stage debut on Thursday, April 15 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the first of seven performances throughout the month. The play follows the trials and tribulations of a non-professional theatre groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planned production (of something reliable and ordinary) which is cancelled. When this happens, Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambition to direct Macbeth is realised.

ILY... MOVIES FOR THE WHOLE FAM

However, he soon discovers that the theatrical curse associated with Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s masterpiece transcends the professional stage, and problems abound. Despite hitches, he is determined to overcome the shortfall of men, delicate backstage relationships and the wiles of the scheming society diva. But the show must go on! Hollidayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play is both witty and poignant and not always kind to those involved in amateur theatricals. For more information on the production, visit www.ttt.org.au

Earth and ocean on show at Aireys BRIGHT and vibrant colours that exhibit an ethereal feel often stun those who view the work of Torquay artist Jill Ray. Ray will be showcasing a collection of work entitled Earth and Ocean at the Eagles Nest Gallery, Aireys Inlet, which includes some vibrant works from the red centre of Australia and spectacular features from the rugged isles of New Zealand to complement her ocean and shore paintings. Following her recent travels, Ray has taken a step outside of her comfort zone of oceans and waves to explore the colours of the inland landscapes. “I felt very uncomfortable painting with

colours other than blues and greens but I’m very happy with how these earthy paintings have turned out,” said Ray. “I enjoy capturing its changing moods and colours. The colours are beautifully vibrant and the contrast of the earth and ocean are fascinating. “Recently I travelled to central Australia for the first time and was inspired by the colours of the desert in such a contrast to the ocean.” Ray is best known for her ocean paintings with sweeping waves and vibrant blue colours. “I have lived by the ocean for most of my life and have always been totally in awe of its beauty,” she said.

SAT 10TH

Coming from a surfing family background, Ray’s waves are of special interest to the surfing community. Her paintings exhibit an intimate knowledge of the surfer’s choice in waves, making her art pieces a wonderful inspiration for riders. “In my paintings I strive to capture the constantly changing moods of the sea; tranquil one minute, black and stormy the next; the sunlight shimmering through a wave just before it breaks; the power of a huge wind-blown breaker thundering towards the beach.” The exhibition remains open until Saturday, April 17 at the Eagles Nest Gallery, Aireys Inlet.

Theatre in the shopping centre

CELEBRATE YOUR HOLIDAY

A HIT right across the world, Back to Back Theatre will perform its award winning production small metal objects in Geelong for the first time this month. The Geelong-based company has created an intriguing production performed by four actors, including two with learning disabilities. Their work defies convention, challenges reason and questions the imperative to be ‘normal’. The production ingeniously invites the public to eavesdrop on a personal conversation in the context of a crowded public area. Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) is presenting the performances at Geelong’s Westfield Shopping Centre. The audience will be located on a purpose-built raised seating bank in Westfield Geelong’s centre court area, and equipped with individual sets of headphones, wired in to an intensely personal dialogue. Shoppers will pass by as usual, providing a unique and realistic backdrop as the drama unfolds. A heartwarming and moving play, small metal objects is a story of two invisible men and their inadvertent role in the downfall of a business awards night. GPAC general manager, Jill Smith, said she was thrilled to announce the return of Back to Back Theatre from extensive touring to perform in Geelong and was looking forward to seeing the award-winning work in such a public place. “It is a rare opportunity for GPAC to

present a work outside the arts centre and is perfect timing given the closure of the Playhouse Theatre for renovations,” she said. Westfield Geelong centre manager, Jonathon Codman, said he was excited for the centre to host such a performance. “It’s fantastic to see an innovative theatrical programme like small metal objects leading the way. Westfield Geelong is proud to be hosting a production that will push the boundaries and keep people thinking long after the performance has concluded,” he said. Now in its 30th season worldwide, small metal objects has gathered a swag of awards, including a 2008 New York Bessie Award after its performance at the Under the Radar Festival, and a 2007 Zurich Theatre Festival Appreciation Prize for extraordinary achievement in theatre. The ensemble also received the Sidney Myer Performing Arts Award for its long-standing contribution to the development of Australian theatre. small metal objects is a part of GPAC’s shaken+stirred series of performances and is proudly supported by the TAC and the Myer Foundation. Performances will take place at Westfield Geelong, centre court on the ground level, from April 15 to 18. Tickets are strictly limited and aavailable on 5225 1200 or online at www.gpac.org.au

SURF Coast Film Society will present its next foreign feature on Friday, April 16. The society screens films of the third Friday of the month, with April’s feature La Fille de d’Artagnan. The French film is rated PG and is a historical swashbuckling comedy/adventure set in France in 1654, when a feisty young woman (Sophie Marceau),

daughter of the famed swordsman D’Artagnan, cuts short her religious studies when she uncovers a plot to assassinate the young Louis XIV. Heading to Paris she persuades her father, now in retirement, and the three other original musketeers to fight alongside her to defend their country from the insurgent forces that threaten to throw the nation into disarray.

The lively film is assuredly directed, and pairs old-fashioned adventure with a contemporary knowing wit and a feminist sensibility. The film will be on from 7.30pm at Spring Creek House in Price Street, Torquay. The programme of films for the next six months is available at http://torquay.vic.au/events/ surf-coast-arts-film-society bellarinetimes.com.au

Lorne house breaks new ground as it comes within touching distance of selling for $5million BY NATHAN HALE A LORNE house has set a new mark for property sales on the Surf Coast, selling for a touch under $5million. The five-bedroom home at 57 George Street was sold for an undisclosed sum – but selling agent Ian Stewart from Great Ocean Road Real Estate confirmed the price was just under the magical $5million mark. “It is a record price for a residential property in Lorne by a long way,” Stewart said. “The previous highest price achieved was $3.65million for a house in Smith Street which we sold in August of 2007.” The sale confirms the Surf Coast as arguably the hottest property market in the state. Estate agents throughout the region – from Lorne through to Torquay – have confirmed that the last

Su rf Forecast

eight months have seen sales and prices skyrocket. Apart from the George Street sale, Great Ocean Road Real Estate has sold 13 properties for more than $1million since the start of the year – including three in excess of $2million. Stewart said that come the end of the financial year, Lorne will have gone to a new level in terms of house prices. “We have seen the volume of sales start to return to the market, followed up by couple of outstanding results,” he said. “I think it is reasonable to expect that the average and median house prices will push through the $1million mark by June 30. “We have seen the biggest single kick in property values since 2003-2004 with the sale at George Street. “It is just a brilliant result that has put the coast

right back on the map as a real estate landmark and reinforced the strength of whole Great Ocean Road corridor.” While not quite reaching the dizzying heights of Lorne, Torquay and Jan Juc have also seen a massive increase in house and land prices in the last eight months. Hocking Stuart’s Leigh Hall-Sullivan said demand from buyers in the metropolitan area has increased substantially. “We have had a really constant market for the last eight months and we have seen house and land sales both increase in that time,” he said. “I would say house prices have gone up by 20 per cent in that eight-month period, while blocks of land would be around $50,000 more expensive than they were late last year.

“We have really high interest and demand from buyers in Melbourne – as well as the local area.” LJ Hooker Torquay principal, Bill Nairn, echoed the views of Stewart and Hall-Sullivan, saying recent results were nothing short of remarkable. “We believe we set a record price for an older-style beach home in Jan Juc at a recent auction when the house sold for $560,000,” he said. “It was a great result for the vendor and it set a benchmark for the Jan Juc area which I believe will continue. “We have seen a mix of buyers – with a third coming into town, a third renters looking to get on the property market and a third locals.” Nairn said land sales continued to be strong, with the latest release of blocks at The Quay already sold, with, on average, one block being sold per day.

Welcome to the second of our bi-monthly columns in the Surf Coast Times for 2010 where we report on some of the recent activities within our business.   

 Some of the land we manage in Anglesea behind McConnell Close falls into a local Asset Protection Zone (APZ). APZâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are designated by DSE and they typically surround areas where there is a risk to human life and property from  to be intensive and aim to maintain vegetation

surfcoasttimes.com.au

        Anglesea recently worked with local contractor Snakes and Ladders to complete vegetation clearing in this APZ. We removed environmental woody weeds including coast tea-tree and coastal wattle and the work took over 140 â&#x20AC;&#x153;person-hoursâ&#x20AC;? to complete. The vegetation was either hand pulled or cut with a chain saw and then mulched on site. The mulch was removed and taken to Eumeralla Scout Camp for them to use on their grounds. All mulch had to be removed from the site in order to reduce the fuel load within the APZ. Over 50 cubic meters of mulch was removed as part of the job. We will continue to manage this area as part of our ongoing land management work.

Did you know Alcoa Anglesea has a community             groups achieve their goals in the local community? In 2009 we supported many groups, including: Aireys       ANGAIR Inc, Anglesea Bike Park, Anglesea Bowling Club, Anglesea Coffee and Cycling Club, Anglesea Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shed, Anglesea Playgroup, Anglesea District   Â      Performing Arts, Anglesea Recreation & Sports Club, Anglesea Surf Life Saving Club, Birds Australia, Lions Club of Anglesea, Lorne Community Hospital, /RUQH)LJWUHH&RPPXQLW\+RXVH$QJOHVHD3ODW\SXV Toy Library, Torquay Bowls Club and Torquay RSL.

Improved management of SO2 has been the highest priority environmental project for Alcoa Anglesea for several years and we continue to monitor and work on it as part of the daily operation of the power station. SO2 is an air emission released from the stack that is created when coal

containing sulphur is burnt in the power station. We hosted a team of EPA appointed auditors from Peter J Ramsay and Associates in late December to conduct an environmental audit to satisfy the EPA that the Air Quality Control System (AQCS) and other management initiatives embedded in the station operation to control SO2 emissions from the plant are robust and sustainable. The audit was completed in March 2010, with the auditor concluding that Angleseaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approach to SO2 management is robust and sustainable for the control of SO2 emissions and that the tools employed reliably achieve compliance with the State Environment Protection Policy (Ambient Air Quality) policy objectives.

 

Our next bi-monthly Community Consultation Network (CCN) meeting is on Monday April 12. The meeting will be held at the Anglesea and District Community House from 7pm. Everyone is welcome.

New tenders for redevelopment Torquay Marine Rescue Service, new public toilets, a community meeting room, restaurant and kiosk, as well as improved boat and trailer parking for boat ramp users and improved car parking for beach users. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Fishermans Beach redevelopment will be a new iconic beachfront facility on a fantastic part of the Torquay foreshore that will provide new and improved services for the local community and visitors alike for years to come,â&#x20AC;? said Clarke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In recent months, the committee has been working to finalise a revised budget for the project and to ensure the design is in line with that revised budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We estimate the total cost of constructing the Fishermans Beach redevelopment to be around $3.5million to $4million, including all costs associated with constructing the new facilities and related civil and landscaping works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are confident the new tender process will allow us to proceed with the project, given there was strong interest from experienced construction firms in 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Importantly, I want to assure user groups and the general community that GORCC is committed to delivering a high quality new facility at Fishermans Beach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We anticipate construction starting around June or July 2010 with completion in the first quarter of 2011.â&#x20AC;?

Last month saw the close of expressions of interest for stage one construction, which comes after the state government approved a planning amendment that paves the way for the current site to be used for community facilities as well as its $400,000 grant for a synthetic football pitch and lighting. This comes in addition to a $4million commitment made by

PEARL STREET GILBERT ST

THE FIRST step in the multi-million dollar redevelopment of Torquayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fishermans Beach was announced last week, with a new tender process. Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (GORCC) chief executive officer, David Clarke, said following the injection of state government funds late last year, the organisation was now ready to proceed with the redevelopment. Last December the state government announced a $750,000 funding injection to the project. This followed GORCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision in mid-2009 not to award the construction tender, as tender prices exceeded the project budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The injection of additional funds by the state government means we are now in a position to proceed with this important project,â&#x20AC;? Clarke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, due to the passing of time since the initial tender in mid-2009 and the fact that we have included some additional design options in the tender package, we now need to implement a new tender process.â&#x20AC;? Tenders for the construction project close on April 28. The redevelopment will deliver a purpose-built community, tourism and recreation facility on the Torquay foreshore. It will include new and improved facilities for Torquay Angling Club and

Shire striving for cycle safety SURF Coast Shire will today unveil draft plans that will make Torquayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Esplanade a safer cycling route and improve safety for all road users. The Esplanade project, which proposes road widening, marking of car parks and bicycle lanes between Darian Road and Horseshoe Bend Road, is one of a number of projects council has earmarked to make the Surf Coast safer for all road users. Funding has been earmarked in the development of councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010/2011 Capital Works Programme, which will be considered as part of the 2010/2011 budget. Plans will be on exhibition from today, in conjunction with councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Whites Beach Masterplan, which seeks to provide for improved facilities, better drainage, safer pedestrian access and improved vegetation in this important area of public space. Recently, council has also applied for state funding to improve shared pedestrian and cycling footpaths connecting Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven, including a new bridge across Painkalac Creek, road safety improvements to Horseshoe Bend Road and South Beach Road. Mayor, Libby Coker, said council worked closely with groups, including

GORCC launches new website WE HAVE

MOVED

Torquay Hire Service & Torquay Steel Supplies

GREAT Ocean Road Coast Committee last week took a significant leap forward in improving the way it communicates and engages with the community. The organisation has launched a new-look website – www.gorcc.com.au – the development of which was funded from the federal government’s Caring for our Country programme. Chief executive officer, David Clarke, said the new website provides an interactive and dynamic tool that enables people to learn about GORCC and the work it does to protect and manage the coast along the Great Ocean Road between Torquay and Lorne. The site’s content also covers various issues confronting the coast, such as climate change, and

the simple things everyone can do to help look after the coastal environment. “The new website is focused on the inter-related themes of enjoying our coast and looking after our coast, and contains a wealth of information about these and other topics, including who we are, what we do and what’s happening in terms of key coastal issues and projects,” said Clarke. “Our new Facebook and Twitter pages, which can be easily accessed via a button on the homepage, provide regular real-time updates about what we’re up to and allow users to interact directly with us online. “There are also links to YouTube – where we have posted our first video about climate change and the

coast – and Flickr, which features some beautiful photos of the coast and our work to protect it. “In addition, our blog provides a space for generating ongoing commentary and dialogue with users about various aspects of the coast and pertinent issues. “All this represents a brave new world for GORCC in terms of informing, educating, connecting, interacting and engaging with people in the online environment.” The website’s development is the first part of the Helping Communities Help the Coast Along the Great Ocean Road programme, which has been developed by GORCC through funding from the federal government’s Caring for Our Country.

ON T H E BE AT Brought to you by Neighbourhood Watch Torquay/Jan Juc

Marking our territory

LAST month saw Neighbourhood Watch Victoria Incorporated â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mark it in Marchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Historically, the statewide property marking initiative was held on one day before expanding to become one week, and it now operates over a busy and very popular month. To focus on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mark it in Marchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the TorquayJan Juc NHW set up a stall at The Quay Family Fun Day on March 14. Representatives provided information about home and vehicle security to people passing by. They also offered to engrave personal property and gave out the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;All valuables removed from this vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sign. This sign has two important roles; it helps drivers to remember not to leave their belongings in sight of potential thieves; and it also lets those thieves know that there is no point in breaking into the car.

Property marking

Marking items clearly identifies them as your property. Property marking will deter burglars by making it difficult for them to dispose of your goods and help police return them to you. Here are a few tips on how to identify your property: â&#x20AC;˘ Use an engraver to mark items on your inventory list (an engraver is available for loan from your Torquay-Jan Juc Neighbourhood Watch group (a returnable deposit is requested) â&#x20AC;˘ Mark your property with a V for Victoria and then your drivers licence number â&#x20AC;˘ Take photographs or videotape items that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be engraved â&#x20AC;˘ Write a brief description of the item, including any distinguishing marks or serial numbers on the back of the photo. Keep photos or videos in a safe place

â&#x20AC;˘ Fill out a Property Identification Form from your local police station so police will have your code if your property is stolen Stickers are available from Neighbourhood Watch to show your property has been marked. Display these stickers on your property and in prominent places around the house.

Property inventory

Compile a detailed inventory of your property. Record the serial numbers, makes, models, colour and size of specific items. Keep the inventory in a safe place away from home and update it when you get new property.

Property marking in rural areas

Use metal engravers or stamps to mark all tools, vehicles, machinery and equipment with your driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence number followed by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Vâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Paint an iridescent coloured spot on all tools, equipment and machinery. If stolen goods are found in the same district, police can quickly identify them. You will still need your licence number in a hidden location to link it to you.

Data dots

Data dots are a modern and simple way to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;engraveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; property. They are as tiny as a grain of sand, very difficult to detect with the naked eye, and each one is laser etched with several lines of a unique identifying code. That code can be of the userâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as drivers licence, phone number, name and address. Neighbourhood Watch supports any method which deters would-be thieves, and therefore sees Data Dots as another product which might achieve that objective. However, the value of this product is the assistance it provides to authorities that locate stolen property. It identifies property and

            

SES volunteer Gary provides a valuable service to local motorists as he secures the car number plate with non-removable screws at the recent Quay Family Fun Day.

therefore assists in the prosecution of offenders found in possession of property so marked. http://www.datadotdna.com/australia/

An urgent note from Torquay police

Residents need to be extra careful when leaving motor vehicles outside in the driveway. Recently, there has been an increase in the number of thefts from cars and the majority of them were left unlocked. Parking your car in the driveway does not deter these thieves. So, ensure your car is left with windows closed and doors locked and ensure you do not leave valuables in the car. If you hear noises during the night, do not hesitate to ring 000 and ask for police.

National Youth Week

National Youth Week will be held from April 10-18 this year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a national initiative that gives young people (aged 12 to 25) the chance to express their ideas and views about issues that affect their lives. If you are interested in having your voice heard and being part of the action, you can register by completing a form from www. youthcentral.vic.gov.au

â&#x20AC;Ś And have a lot of fun!

Each year, the Office for Youth helps by providing grants to get gigs off the ground. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too late for this year but visit www.youthweek. com to get your plans started for 2011.

THE TWO-WEEK celebration that is the Rip Curl Pro brings with it plenty of parties in between the world-class surfing action. Last week Rip Curl held its annual media night while Reef pulled in some of the biggest names in surfing to Left off the Rocks for the world premiere screening of Cancer to Capricorn – The Path of the Modern Gypsy. Apart from the array of surfers, past and present – including Taj Burrow, Jay Thompson, Nic Muscroft, Jack Perry, Roy Powers, Mark Occhilupo and Dean Morrison – the Reef party also had a couple of special guests drop by in Geelong captain Cameron Ling and musician Xavier Rudd. Emma and Julian added to the glamour of the Reef Party.

Licence fee hikes hit home SERIOUS ramifications of the drastic hikes in liquor licence fees are starting to be seen with a shattering reduction of Geelong winery participants in one of Victoria’s premier wine events, the Federation Square Victorian Wine Showcase. The Victorian Wine Showcase is a major annual state government initiative designed specifically to highlight the calibre and diversity of this state’s wines to the Victorian community and Australian tourism market. The event is staged over several months with each Victorian wine region taking the stage for public tastings and judging over two nights each month. The event culminates in an overall awards ceremony which platforms the best wines in Victoria. The Geelong Winegrowers Association (GWA) has blamed the state government for the reduction in participants, saying it was a direct and dire ramification of the liquor licence fee hikes introduced in January.

The fee increases have seen a vigneron’s licence increase by more than 100 per cent, a Limited Renewable Licence increase by 698 per cent and a Temporary Liquor Licence (to attend one off events) increase by more than 300 per cent. “Last year 23 Geelong region wineries participated in the Federation Square Victorian Wine Showcase, this year only 13 have chosen to be involved,” said Lyndsay Sharp, president of the GWA. Sharp said that when it came to answering calls for reconsideration and reform to the new laws, the state government continued to hide behind a smoke screen of unrelated, inner urban violence statistics. “The government’s generic response that the liquor industry should cover its own administration, regulatory and policing costs is nonsense,” she said. “It is penalising winegrowers, small businesses, charities and communities for specific costs relating to emergency service resources called upon to deal with incidents of late night CBD violence.”

Politicisation of our water resources Dear Editor, The politicisation of our water resources has disappointed many residents across western Victoria, particularly those in the Geelong region. On February 19 the state government water authority, Barwon Water, eased water restrictions from stage 4 to stage 3, allowing residents to increase the time they spend watering their garden by 300 per cent. Geelong residents expressed concern that Barwon Water has reduced water restrictions in summer. After the driest 10-year period in Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history the natural inclination of households might be to greet such news with open arms. However, residents are sceptical of Barwon Water leaders who, in the company of the premier and Labor supporters, announced what is widely seen as a politically timed decision. The November state election is dictating regional water policy rather than water availability in our catchments. Water levels are currently at around 30 per cent, approximately the same level as recorded in February 2008 when it was decided to maintain stage 4 restrictions. Barwon Water attributed the easing of water restrictions to the new Anglesea borefieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to meet a large part of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future water requirements. If this is the case customers are now rightly questioning the necessity of building the expensive $150m Melbourne-Geelong water pipeline. I support Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water userâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns that water security is being compromised to satisfy the political whims of the Brumby government. This political point-scoring may well be to the detriment of Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future water security.

Concern on golf club request Dear Editor, I would hope every local surfer read your recent article in regard to the Torquay Golf Course requesting the diversion of storm water from the Jan Juc creek into a holding basin at the golf course. It is common knowledge that when the creek overflows and the river mouth opens, sand is redirected out into the ocean. This leads to the

Decision makes no sense Dear Editor, In regard to the recent council decision on the Jan Juc footpath special charge scheme, it is clear that the new mayor, Libby Coker, has fallen at the first hurdle. It is obvious that the wishes of the local community have yet again been overridden and ignored by council. I find it beyond comprehension that the overwhelming majority of Jan Juc ratepayers, who were vehemently opposed to ANY special charge scheme, were dismissed out of hand. Is it any wonder that these councillors command so little respect when decisions like this alienate and discourage community engagement and participation in council process. Why is it that 50 objections to The Beach Hotel development proposal carries more weight in the decision making process than 900 written objections against footpaths? We WILL bite the bullet, and fire a shot across the council bows at VCAT. Roll on the next council elections so we can make our vote count.

GCEG stance is confusing Dear Editor, As a concerned resident of Gherang I would appreciate an answer from the Gherang Community & Environment Group (GCEG) to a question I am constantly being asked: What is the GCEG position on the Geelong Geothermal Power Project proposal? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m told by many residents that the GCEG has no position, which I find hard to believe, as it was formed after a community meeting to fight the proposal. In edition four of the GCEG newsletter, it says it is taking the lead in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;representation and/or negotiation role with respect to the protection and enhancement of the environment, social wellbeing, amenities and neighbourhood character of the Gherang Hamletâ&#x20AC;?. Would it please explain where the amenities will be built? Will they be a toilet block, bus shelter, or maybe a public BBQ at the Modewarre Memorial Hall? In edition three of the GCEG newsletter, the GCEG claims it will be applying for government funding, which I can only assume is for the aforementioned amenities. Of course, the GCEG canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t apply for government funding to fight the government, can it? Is the GCEG fighting the geothermal threat or has it become a progress association by another name? The residents of Gherang would be grateful if the GCEG can publicly declare its position, now.

Council should be commended Dear Editor, I refer to your story with The Beach Hotel owner, Rohan Pertzel, following the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unanimous decision to reject the hotel development proposal. The council should be commended for their decision. Despite Mr Pertzelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to compare his proposal with the footpaths issue, the council rejected the development on the following basis: 1. The proposed development fails to provide sufficient car parking spaces and will cause a loss of amenity for adjoining residents as result of traffic congestion and increased noise etc. 2. The proposed development site is inappropriately located being within the Jan Juc activity centre

The proposed built form is not consistent with the character of Jan Juc, including the commercial precinct, as it is overly tall and bulky, will dominate the streetscape and will be highly visible over a wide area. 4. The location of balconies and outdoor areas will be detrimental to the amenity of neighbouring properties. (Ref: Surf Coast Shire minutes 24/03/10). Contrary to Mr Pertzelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spin, the development is not supported by the community, contributes nothing to the community, and would result in the loss of over $1.8 million dollars per year form the community. Any claims that the pokies-financed development will be family friendly should be dismissed as spin designed to sugarcoat this greedy proposal. The owners should consider the $800,000 the Romsey Hotel spent on legal fees for their failed bid, and leave the hotel as it is â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or propose a smaller development, sans pokies, that actually conforms to council planning requirements.

Moss makes an impact THE REGARD with which Moss Industry Florist is held was underlined at last month’s Melbourne Flower and Garden Show. The Barwon Heads-based business was one of just 10 florists chosen to exhibit at the international show. Despite having been in business for just four years, Moss Industry has already built up a strong clientele base with its imaginative and unique arrangements. The business, however, is a lot more than just flowers. “We also do homewares, and are quite well known for them, and we also make a lot of sculptural pieces – all by hand,” said Moss Industry’s Alex O’Halloran. “Everything we do is by hand and we have been fortunate enough to build up a good name through our work, but also through word of mouth.” As part of the display at the show, head wedding florist, Danielle Fraser, worked for more than two months to design and make sculptures that symbolised the beauty of nature. “The display at the show was actually bigger than our shop,” O’Halloran said. “It took us three days to set up and the exposure we received was great and it was a real success. “We have already been invited back for next year.” While the business deals in homewares and hand-crafted sculptures, wedding flowers, arrangements and bridal bouquets are a speciality.

“We do a huge amount of weddings,” O’Halloran said. “The majority of our clientele comes from Melbourne, with everyone coming down to get married on the beach.” A great marketing tool for the business has also been its online blog, which is an up-todate snapshot of what is happening within the company. “I look after the blog and try and keep clients up to date with what we are doing and it enables brides to see what we have done if they can’t make it to us,” O’Halloran said. Moss Industry Florist is located at 3/53 Hitchcock Avenue, Barwon Heads. For more information, visit www.mossindustryflorist. com.au

Attention REAL

RENOWNED blues and roots performer, Ash Grunwald, has put his Torquay house on the market. Grunwald, who played at The Rose on the weekend to promote the release of his new live album, Live at the Fly By Night, is currently building a house at Byron Bay on the New South Wales north coast. The property â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at 2 Wattle Court â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is on the market through Hocking Stuart, and will go to auction on May 1 with a price guide of between $550,000 and $575,000. The house enables the buyer to enjoy rustic bush character in a double story cottage with a uniquely appealing aura. With large accommodation and a versatile floorplan encompassing four bedrooms and two bathrooms, the property enjoys a creative edge. The kitchen and living areas embrace a sunny, northerly aspect which overlooks the backyard, while there is also a large second living area. Hocking Stuartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shaun Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Callaghan said he expected the property to be snapped up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; continuing the strong recent performance of the local market. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a lovely property and it will create a lot of interest,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been particularly busy and properties are continuing to sell well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there has definitely been a rebound in the market. It has been interesting to hear the comments from people in the street saying they have seen more and more sold stickers around town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been really good from our point of view

Supply shortage drives growth THE RECENT release of the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) December quarter dwelling commencement figures confirms that the supply shortage has been the prime factor driving price growth and represents the biggest threat to affordability over the next five years. In the past five years Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rate of population growth has increased by 84 per cent and, according to the ABS, the number of dwelling commencements in Victoria has increased by 22.4 per cent (seasonally adjusted). The significant increase in the number of dwellings commenced is very welcome â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and if it continues for the next few quarters it will have a beneficial impact on affordability and prices. The release of the REIV Annual Property Update for 2009 shows that as the population has increased, so have house prices. The median price of a house in Melbourne in 2009 was $465,000. Since 2006 the Melbourne median house price has grown by 23 per cent, compared to four per cent for the period between 2003 and 2006. The supply shortage became particularly protracted last year, as the improving economy brought life back into the market. As a result, six of the top 10 growth suburbs for the year had a median below half a million: Dallas, Broadmeadows, Sunshine North, Highton and Croydon North. In regional Victoria the median price of a house increased by seven per cent from $258,000 in 2008 to $276,000. Within key regional centres the strongest growth in prices was found in Bell Post Hill, Highton and Hamlyn Heights in Greater Geelong, in Alfredton and Sebastopol in Ballarat, and in Strathdale in Greater Bendigo. As the REIV Annual Property Update compares all sales in 2009 with all sales in 2008, it does not show the significant changes in demand towards the end of 2009, as is evident in the REIV December Property Update, which is available at www.reiv.com.au

Industry Info

Assurity for builders LAST weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement by state finance minister, Tim Holding, on changes to the home owners warranty arrangements in Victoria sends a reassuring message to builders concerned about the withdrawal of Vero from the home owners warranty market. Legislation in Victoria requires builders to take out home owners warranty policies in favour of their clients before commencing any residential building work above $12,000. The policy covers a range of prescribed events, including the completion of work if the builder dies, disappears or becomes insolvent. Veroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement last month that it would withdraw from the home owners warranty underwriting market from July 1 this year comes after the recent withdrawal of CGU and Lumley late last year. Under the new arrangements announced, the Victorian government will step in to underwrite all home owner warranty policies across Victoria through the Victorian Managed Insurance Authority (VMIA) with the transition commencing from last week. HIA Victorian executive director, Gil King, welcomed the

announcement, adding that the changes are intended to provide stability and certainty for builders and consumers alike. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Builders across Victoria have been somewhat uneasy about the future of the home warranty scheme and possible roadblocks constraining building activity since Veroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement,â&#x20AC;? King said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And while todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement provides a clear signpost for the industry, our attention is now squarely on the transitional arrangements.â&#x20AC;? Existing HIA Insurance Service clients will be contacted to facilitate the transition to the new insurance scheme over the next few months and there is no need for them to do anything at this stage. It is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;business as usualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Builders need ready access to policies on a daily basis and the current distribution arrangements provide that,â&#x20AC;? King said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wholeheartedly support the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement that the VMIA will continue to use current brokers to minimise disruption to the building industry.â&#x20AC;? It is important that the new scheme does not unintentionally penalise good builders who operate sound and

HIA Victorian executive director, Gil King.

well capitalised businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must not lose sight of the purpose of the scheme. Consumer protection is not enhanced by exposing consumers to unsustainable businesses,â&#x20AC;? said King. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The current rating of buildersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; risk provides a necessary safeguard and rewards builders who operate good businesses â&#x20AC;&#x201C; enhancing competition

and facilitating cost savings for consumers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With Victorian population growth leading the country, the next 12-18 months will be a critical time for residential building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is now more important than ever for the state government to work constructively with builders to reduce regulatory bottlenecks and facilitate a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;business as usualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; transition into the new home warranty arrangements.â&#x20AC;? It is also important that the Victorian government works with industry to improve the existing domestic building dispute resolution process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The current dispute resolution system is confusing and does not properly support the home warranty insurance scheme, regardless of who runs it,â&#x20AC;? King said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Builders do not trust the dispute process and it does not provide adequate protection or certainty for homeowners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It continues to be a total failure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are keen to work constructively with the Victorian government to facilitate a smooth transition to the new insurance scheme and to ensure it is fair and equitable.â&#x20AC;?

WRECK OF THE â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;JOSEPH H SCAMMELLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: Extracts from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;History of Torquayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by James A Baines 1938 The fact that the vessel was in danger was first noticed by a fisherman named Felix Rosser, at about 11 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock in the night. He had just been attending to some lobster pots, in Zeally Bay, and when returning home to supper, saw the out-line of a dark mass close up to the shore. He at once surmised that it was a ship, which in some way got out of her course, and said to his wife â&#x20AC;&#x153; Why hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a vessel in where she ought not to beâ&#x20AC;? He had scarcely uttered the words when a torch light flashed across the angry sea, then he observed a red light shining at the mast-head of the vessel. He could not immediately do anything in response to the signals of distress that continued to be exhibited, but at 2am that morning, taking advantage of an interval of calm, put off in his fishing boat and rowed to within 300 yards of the wreck. Owing to the surf about the vessel, he could not approach further, but called out to those on board informing them of their position. He also pointed out the impossibility of anything being done to get away from the wreck, until the morning.

Stylish and affordable

METRICON has welcomed 2010 by opening its hugely anticipated first display centre featuring the Allegra range home designs. With home affordability a big focus this year, Metricon’s Allegra range is the breakthrough in affordable housing Victoria has been waiting for. Metricon continues to make the dream of home ownership a reality by offering a range of inspiring single storey homes jam packed with features, but without the huge price tag.

The Allegra range comprises 10 home designs to suit varying block widths and lifestyle choices. Metricon’s general manager – regional west, Phil Barrett, suggests that the housing shortage across Australia’s major cities is not going to be solved anytime soon. “At Metricon, we feel the shortage in housing is going to put further strain on the rental market,”

he said. “The Allegra range is a huge step forward for anyone on a budget or wanting to own their first home. “With prices starting from less than $128,000, these stylish homes really do live up to the promise of ‘style made simple’. “The range has been developed to offer ‘everything you need, and nothing you don’t’, making it more affordable than ever to own your own home. “The Allegra range offers great value without compromising on quality and design. Our high standards extend to our professional new home consultants who are customer focused and dedicated to helping home buyers realise their dreams. “In fact, our point of difference – according to feedback from people who’ve built with us – is our personalised attention and being able to deliver the ultimate building experience. “Our newest display centre in Manor Lakes (near Werribee) showcases two new designs from the Allegra range – the Lancaster 25 and Delta 22. “The Lancaster offers an unexpected, yet very practical layout for the growing family. This design encompasses a spacious open plan family, dining and kitchen area and also has a delightful separate sitting room. “The Delta is a remarkable four-bedroom home with two separate living areas designed to suit a narrower 12.5-metre allotment. Both

The hunt is over for luxurious & affordable designer homes.

designs are a must see. “In 2010 Metricon is offering customers more choice with new displays, new designs and a great selection of home and land packages to suit all budgets. And to top this all off, all of our homes feature superior quality workmanship, independent quality checks and a rock-solid 25-year structural guarantee.

“Our guaranteed 18-week build time for single storey homes within the Allegra range reflects our confidence in our building team and takes the pressure off those who are renting whilst waiting for their homes to be built.” For further information, visit www. metricon.com.au or phone 1300 METRICON (638 742).

Little delivers a lot in building AND DESIGN

TORQUAY building company Little Constructions ticks all the boxes when it comes to creating new homes and renovations that are unique, environmentally-friendly and stress-free. Mark Little prides himself on maintaining a hands-on presence in every project – from initial quotes and contracts through to project management and pulling on a nail bag when required, Little understands the importance of being involved every step of the way.

surfcoasttimes.com.au

“From day one it is critical to ensure all parties are headed in the same direction,” said Little, who stays in weekly – and often daily – contact with his clients. “Contrary to popular belief, there are constant decisions to be made throughout the construction process and our clients appreciate being kept up to date.” At the start of each project, Little conducts a site meeting with the client and a draftsperson to ensure the individuality of the design and to establish a passive solar orientation.

“Most people now understand the environmental and economic value of passive solar buildings and our clients are always pleased to know Little Constructions incorporates it into every design,” he said. Little is a fully-accredited and award-winning builder with more than 15 years’ industry experience and many happy clients across the Surf Coast, Bellarine Peninsula and Geelong.

Oh my, what new therapy? BY ALICE WILSON LITTLE do people know when mentioning the world myotherapy what the treatment is. Yet for people with muscle complaints and issues, it can be a welcome relief. The treatment has recently come to Jan Juc with many patients walking out feeling â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lighterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and without intense muscle pain. It is a manual therapy that assesses and treats muscle dysfunction and pain; its purpose is to restore optimal function and movement. Myotherapists manipulate the muscles and connective tissues to normalise muscle length, strength, tension and co-ordination between muscles, the joints they work across and the other systems of the body. What myotherapy does? â&#x20AC;˘ It alleviates local and referred pain associated with myofascial trigger points (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;knotsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the muscles) â&#x20AC;˘ It reduces muscle tension caused by exercise, overuse, emotional tension, trauma and the effects of surgery â&#x20AC;˘ It stretches muscle and connective

tissue and increases local blood flow â&#x20AC;˘ It reduces stiffness and increases range of movement â&#x20AC;˘ It shortens healing time due to increased blood flow and metabolism in the muscle â&#x20AC;˘ It reduces the strain, discomfort and stiffness associated with physical exercise â&#x20AC;˘ It enhances movement and muscular power by increasing the efficiency of muscle actions. Who can benefit from myotherapy? â&#x20AC;˘ Those suffering from pain associated with strain and stress â&#x20AC;˘ Those suffering pain or dysfunction associated with poor posture â&#x20AC;˘ Those who wish to maintain good function and movement or reduce the risk of stress and strain on the musculoskeletal system â&#x20AC;˘ Those suffering from chronic conditions affecting mobility

Diabetes funding is welcomed DIABETES Australia, the peak national body for diabetes, has welcomed last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement from the federal government to invest $436million from 2012, to provide a new funding approach and more personalised and co-ordinated, multidisciplinary care for Australians with diabetes. The announcement comes at a time when Australia has almost one million people diagnosed with diabetes and a similar number may be undiagnosed. Acting chief executive officer of Diabetes Australia, Professor Greg Johnson, said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;with 275 Australians a day developing diabetes, we are in the midst of a diabetes epidemic and the

health and hospital system simply cannot cope with the numbersâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know people with diabetes are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;frequent flyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the hospital system and that 32 per cent of preventable hospital admissions in Australia relate to people with diabetes and its complications, which include heart attacks, strokes, blindness, kidney problems and limb amputations,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This new funding is focused on type 2 diabetes, which is over 85 per cent of cases and is largely diagnosed and managed in general practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is good evidence that if we provide more funds and more focus

THOUSANDS of Australians are left at unnecessary risk of a heart attack or stroke due to a failure to recognise major risk factors or failure to take action to reduce their likelihood of suffering a life-threatening cardiovascular event. This is according to leading Australian heart and diabetes experts who are urging Australians to rethink â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and discuss with their doctor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; their risk of cardiovascular disease. Despite decades of advancements in the detection and treatment of cardiovascular disease, many Australians at high risk still. Amongst this high risk group of people are those who have suffered

a heart attack or stroke in the past and may dismiss it as â&#x20AC;&#x153;just a turnâ&#x20AC;?, as well as diabetes patients with complications, like kidney disease. Doctors dub these patients â&#x20AC;&#x153;healthy but high riskâ&#x20AC;? and warn that while they may otherwise feel healthy, they have at least a 15 per cent chance of suffering a heart attack or stroke within five years. Associate Professor John Amerena, cardiologist from Geelong Hospital, explained that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Australians who have suffered a heart attack or stroke remain at significant risk of suffering another event in the future, regardless of how long ago they had their first eventâ&#x20AC;?.

on co-ordinated, multi-disciplinary care in general practices then we can produce better outcomes for people with diabetes and we can prevent many of the avoidable hospital admissions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People with diabetes need to see doctors, diabetes educators, dietitians, podiatrists, optometrists, physiotherapists and exercise physiologists, psychologists and possibly others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very difficult for many people to navigate the current system and to access these supports.â&#x20AC;?

State health system is failing: Davis SHADOW Health Minister, David Davis, last week claimed hundreds of people fed up with waiting too long for treatment walked out of the emergency department at Barwon Health over three months last year. David said these figures prove the current hospital system cannot cope under the state government. Data obtained under Freedom of Information by the Victorian LiberalNationals Coalition show from July 1 to September 30 last year at Barwon Health, 612 people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or one in 20 people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; walked out of the emergency department without being treated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is appalling that John Brumby continues to try shift the blame for the crisis in Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hospital system,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Under John Brumby, Victoria has the lowest ratio of beds to population of any state, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no wonder there are literally thousands of patients across the system who have been forced to wait for hours for a bed and have chosen

to walk out of emergency departments in desperation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More than 10 years ago, John Brumby and Labor promised to fix our hospitals and focus on the basics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since then John Brumby has closed hundreds of beds, and the Australian Medical Association calculates that Victoria urgently needs hundreds of new beds just to meet current demand. This crisis will only worsen with Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing and ageing population. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bed closures under John Brumby have led to routine â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;access blockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and incredibly long waits for beds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Families need effective emergency departments, not long waits that force them to walk out in desperation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Until John Brumby takes responsibility for the mismanagement of Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hospital system and provide more beds to enable our hard-working doctors and nurses to relieve the pressure on emergency departments, Victorians will continue to suffer and wait for medical attention.â&#x20AC;?

Parks Victoria is committed to protecting and enhancing the natural values of parks and reserves across the state. Examples of this conservation management are the control of introduced plant and animal species which can impact on these values. As part of an ongoing strategy notice is hereby given that Parks Victoria will be laying buried baits containing Sodium Monofluoroacetate (1080 poison) on public land for the control of foxes. Baits containing 1080 poison will be laid from Wednesday 7 April 2010 until Friday 30 April 2010. Baits will be laid at strategic sites and other known areas of fox habitat within the parish of Connewarre. 1080 poison signs will be posted throughout the baited area and members of the public who are living, visiting or working in the above named parishes are advised to take particular care not to disturb or interfere with bait stations. Domestic dogs and cats are particularly susceptible to 1080 poison and should be under effective control, muzzled or kept away from the poisoned areas. Operational details may be obtained from Stuart Willsher by calling Parks Victoria on 13 1963.

A new coastal incentive program known as CoastalTender has been funded by the Australian Government to implement long term protection and enhancement of the coastline within the Corangamite region. This new funding will support land managers in the management and conservation of native vegetation and habitat on properties (>1ha) along the Corangamite coastline, including revegetation with indigenous species. The project will cover the entire coastline for the Corangamite region, as well as areas surrounding the Port Phillip Bay and Bellarine Peninsula Ramsar sites which fall within the Corangamite region. The current budget for the first round of CoastalTender is approximately $500,000. It is open to private land owners, local government shire councils and foreshore committees of management to undertake works on land that they directly manage. Land managers who formally express interest in the scheme will receive an obligation-free site assessment, and a draft management plan. The plan will contain a vegetation assessment and provide advice on management options. Following this, the land manager will be invited to submit a tender nominating the bid price they are seeking in order to undertake the management actions as outlined in the management plan. Tenders will then enter a competitive tender evaluation process. Once successful tenders have been determined, a five year agreement based on the agreed actions included in the bid will be signed. Land managers can also opt to include long-term protection commitments in their agreement, which will improve their competitiveness. Under these agreements, the land manager will receive financial incentive payments. Only actions that are over and above those required by current responsibilities under existing arrangements and legislation will be eligible for support. For further information, and to register an Expression of Interest, please telephone Polly Matthews on 0417 511 999 (Monday to Wednesday) or visit the website at www.ccma.vic.gov.au â&#x20AC;&#x201C; be quick because oversubscription in the scheme may result in later registrations missing out. mitch34718

APR 06 - APR 12 2010 Friends and finances are a messy mix on Thursday so try to keep the two separate. Whether you tackle a DIY project, play gracious host or help out in your local community, home sweet home is the place to be this weekend. Leave work problems outside the door as you luxuriate in the pleasures of casa Capricorn.

Pace yourself on Thursday, when tricky Moon/Mars aspects leave you feeling impulsive and irritable. The main quality you need to cultivate this week is patience. You’re keen to escape from present difficulties but the motto for the moment is “Good things come to those who wait” – especially when it comes to love.

I’ve got two words to describe this week Crabs – it’s complicated! You’ll have more ups and downs than a rollercoaster, as you veer from irrational behaviour to calm contentment – and then back again. Try to maintain a sense of perspective and resist the urge to over-react to well-meant criticism.

The Sun shines on your love life (until April 20) and gives your partner an extra golden glow of gorgeousness. So it’s the perfect time to pamper them with lashings of love, as you show them how much they mean to you. Singles – with Mercury and Venus in your intimacy zone, you need to look for a lover who is also a friend.

Avoid being too safe Taurus! An adventurous approach will transform your world and bring more love and passion into your life. With Venus in your sign (until April 25) your appreciation of the arts is intensified. So it’s a fabulous time to soak up some culture and creativity at a concert, book reading, art exhibition or movie festival.

With Mars in your sign, you’re a Lion with extra courage as you dare to dream and take on mighty challenges. In between juggling family and work responsibilities, make sure you stretch yourself in new directions. Your quote for the week is from birthday great Claire Booth Luce “Courage is the ladder on which all other virtues mount.”

Secretive Scorps have strong beliefs but you often hide your true feelings, for fear of revealing too much of yourself. This week’s stars encourage you to be frank and straightforward with others; to stand up for what you believe in; and tell it like it is. Come the weekend, you’re in the mood to socialise with family and friends.

Aquarians love to have all the latest gadgets. But, with Jupiter, Uranus and the Moon all in your money zone, watch that your urge to splurge doesn’t get out of control as you turn impulse buying into an extreme sport! This week, ignore advertising catalogues, avoid window shopping – and leave your credit card at home.

Twins crave constant communication but this week you’ll need to temporarily escape the hurly-burly of the social world and spend some quality time on your own. You’ll also be drawn to the hidden and mysterious – anything from a good mystery novel to digging up a fascinating secret.

Saturn moves back into your sign this week, so it’s time to be a vigilant Virgo as you tie up loose ends and complete unfinished projects. This weekend’s Piscean Moon encourages you to be more sensitive towards others. They may not share your close attention to detail, but they have many other talents to offer.

This week favours fostering relationships with family, friends and neighbours. And, with the Sun lighting up your sport/hobby zone, it’s also time to pull on your running shoes, hit the gym or turn up the music (loud) and start dancing. For Sagittarians who are sick of being single – love and work are lusciously linked.

Pisceans are masters of avoidance, as you swim around ‘issues’ and side-step challenges. With Jupiter (planet of confidence and bravado) in your sign (for the first time in 12 years) it’s time to tune into the fearless and feisty Fish within. Be inspired by birthday great, Bette Davis “The key to life is accepting challenges.”

Pedal Power ‘Get protected on your bike’ BEING out on the open road on a bike can be dangerous. However, with the right type of purposedesigned gear, you will undoubtedly increase the chance of being noticed by motorists thus increasing your confidence and the enjoy-ability of your ride. Helmets As you would be well aware, helmets are compulsory for all cyclists. For a bicycle helmet to be effective it must fit properly and be worn in the correct manner. Quality helmets now have easy adjustment mechanism from the rear or top of the helmet in the form of a roller, dial or rear retraction system (easily adjusted one handed), dually secured by the adjustable straps beneath the chin. The strap beneath the chin should allow for no more than the size of your pinkie beneath the strap to maintain position. The front of the helmet should be positioned with at least a third of your forehead beneath the front of the helmet. Helmets are extremely, if not the most important, item of protection. Generally the dearer the helmet, the better the fit, the lighter, more aerodynamic and more breathability it will have.

wearing something lightweight and breathable in the warmer weather, and something lightweight but extra warm for the colder, winter months. Wet weather gear, ideally in a bright colour, should be carried at all times – just in case the weather turns. For winter I suggest that you have at least one Roubaix jersey (light fleece lined jersey) and a wind-proof vest and long sleeve breathable jersey for those milder days. Riding glasses Good riding glasses will provide shade during the

daytime and prevent dirt and other debris from getting in your eyes. Sunburn Sunburn is a high risk for cyclist. Shirts with collars and long sleeves are good (loose shirts can be worn over T-shirts/jerseys) as are lightweight scarves to protect the back of your neck. Flap hats can also be work under your helmet. Use a 30+ sunscreen to cover all exposed areas and don’t forget the back of your hands. Avoid putting sunscreen on your forehead as once you start sweating it will run into your eyes.

Cycling gloves Cycling gloves give comfort through padding and give a better grip on the handlebars which adds to safety. They also protect your hands in the event of an accident. Cycling shoes There are hundreds of cycling shoes on the market, particularly if you want to ‘clip in’ to your pedals for your ride. The main purpose behind clip in cycling shoes is that the energy transfer through your pedals is more efficient. You will have the capacity to gain more speed as your pedalling rotation will gain strength from the pulling up, as well as the usual push down motion. Cycling jerseys The purpose of cycling jerseys is that you are

IT WAS the showdown of the season on Wednesday, with the Twilighters issuing a challenge to the pennant players on the closing day of the twilight series. The perpetual Brett Watson sculpture was up for grabs. The event was played with serious intent, and won by the pennant players even though they had to concede that they received somewhat of a shock at the skills of the Twilighters, and were hopelessly outclassed in the ‘refreshment’ stakes. The progress made by many of the players during the Crowne Plaza series has been remarkable, with quite a number now more than capable of challenging for spots in the club’s weekly competition teams. Over their 18-week season, 142 Twilighters took to the greens, with 80 regular attendees making up the core of 16 teams of four, ranging from 13 years old to 80-plus. Using the ideal conditions of the daylight saving evenings, teams of four competed each Wednesday from 6pm to 8pm, with some teams revolving up to eight players. Such has been the amazing success of this format that it will continue next year with the emphasis on flexibility, to meet players’ other commitments and also to allow teams to nominate the level of competition each wishes to enter. Brett Watson won the Crowne Plaza voucher for the most consistent player for the season. Next year, the Twilighters will run a championship for themselves and challenge the Highton twilight bowlers. Anyone interested in joining the group next season needs to get in now as 18 teams already have booked in and there is room for only six more. The best way to get involved is to take out twilight membership from the club, which provides prior entry over non-members. All levels of club membership are now available for next season, spanning May 1 this year to April 31 next year. Other sponsors who helped the twilight programme were Ushers Restaurant and Alcoa. For queries regarding next season contact Ian Gribble on 5264 8120.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB

BY MARGOT SMITH

YOU COULD be forgiven for thinking that April Fools Day was a day late on Friday. The internet failed on Friday and members had to resort to other means to book in for next weekend. Phantom was heard to lament the invention of computers between taking phone calls. Fortunately a rather long phone call to Telstra on Saturday fixed the problem before he was able to dispose of said computers. Meanwhile as our GM moved house, our past GM made a return visit to Anglesea. Damian managed two rounds during the weekend and caught up with quite a few members. Rumor has it that he isn’t getting much time for golf in the west and his scores probably confirm that.

Next Sunday is the first round of the mixed foursomes championships. This is a board event so get your names down quick. There are some ladies looking for partners so any men wanting to play and looking for a partner here is your chance. Just put your name down in the pro shop

Inaugural Surf Coast Junior Bream Fishing Classic Just a reminder that this Sunday, starting at 8.30am, is the first Surf Coast Junior Bream Fishing Classic for children aged 6-16, with prizes and showbags for the kids being given away. Also available are rides on the paddle boats and barbecues… what better way to finish off the Easter School holidays? So if you haven’t already registered make sure you go along to the Anglesea riverbank and register on the day to enable you to compete in the competition.

Sink your teeth into gummy shark

People who enjoy a serve of flake and chips this holiday break are being encouraged by the state government to do just that, confident that they are eating a product from a well-managed and sustainable fishery. Acting executive director of Fisheries Victoria, Michael Hodder, said most of the fish sold as Flake, are gummy sharks, which are common in the marine waters of southern Australia. “Intensive monitoring, research and management action in recent years has led to well-managed and sustainable commercial and recreational fisheries for this species in both Victorian and Commonwealth waters,” said Hodder. “In Victoria, gummy sharks are an important target species for both the commercial and

recreational fishing sectors and is a vital source of fresh fish to restaurants and markets. “Victoria has an agreement with the Commonwealth, in which the total annual commercial catch of gummy shark and school shark combined from Victorian state waters is limited to 40 tonnes. “In 2008/09, the total Victorian commercial catch of these two species from Victorian waters was 21 tonnes, worth $218,000. “Recreational catches are subject to a daily bag limit and possession limit of two fish per person for gummy shark and/or school shark. “Commercial net fishing regulations are designed to ensure juvenile gummy sharks are not caught and large breeding females avoid capture. “The protection of larger breeding females is vital to the long term sustainability of the fishery. “Gummy sharks can be found on or near the sea bed, generally inhabiting coastal marine waters to a depth of around 80 metres. “Most of the targeted Victorian commercial catch comes from the Corner Inlet and Port Phillip Bay fisheries. “These fisheries are carefully managed using controls such as licence limitation and restrictions on the use of net and long-line fishing equipment. “Good management of this fishery ensures sustainable supplies of a popular fish product to Victorian consumers and ensures a viable fishing industry that provides substantial economic and social benefits to many of the state’s regional coastal towns.”

Tainton’s triple treat

Torquay ruckman Zac Host wins this ruck duel during Saturday’s opening round victory Modewarre.

surfcoasttimes.com.au

THIRTEENTH Beach Golf Club’s reigning men’s champion, Troy Tainton, made it three titles in a row last month, beating off all challengers to win by nine shots. In the women’s event, Kerrin Biddle took out the championship for an incredible eighth time in a row – this time by a staggering 25 shots. Tainton won with rounds of 68-7278-76 (294) from Stewart Drayton 75-72-84-74 (285) and in the process reduced his handicap from one to scratch after his four-under first round. Biddle, on a 4 handicap, shot rounds of 79-77-75-75 (316) to win from her nearest rival Kathy Bell (6) who began well but faltered in the last with rounds of 83-83-85-90 (341). Biddle, a physical education teacher at Belmont High School, has now won every women’s championship since the club’s inception. The B Grade championship was won by Drew Cartledge (14) 83-8790-93 (353) by three shots from Mal Smith and the women’s B Grade winner was Alice Page. Bruce Nunn (6) and John Bell (5) tied for the veterans’ championship title on a score of 158, played over two rounds. Bell won the play-off on Saturday with a score of 78 to Nunn’s 82 to claim the title. Andrew Davies (5) is the club’s

new junior champion, following rounds of 75-79 (154) from Alex Schot-Guppy (6), who was three shots adrift after rounds of 78-79 (157) and Jerome Marinovic. Meanwhile, the handicapper will be having a close look at Alice Page’s 35 handicap after her outstanding effort to score 51 stableford points to win the women’s top prize in the combined 13th Beach-Barwon Heads Golf Club 20-hole social competition. Page is on a hot streak, having won 13th Beach’s B Grade Club Championship the previous weekend. The annual combined competition encompasses 10 holes on the 13th Beach Course with 10 holes on the neighbouring Barwon Heads course. Terry Crockett (13th Beach) ran a distant second with 43 points from 13th’s club captain Frankie MacGowan and Helen Robertson (13th) on 42. The men’s event was won by John Edsall (13th) with 44 points from Peter Brain (13th) and Robin Boag (BH) with 43. Two special ‘visitors’ in the field were New Zealand pair, Jamie Patton and Michael Goldstein, who are on a world golfing trip to raise money for a children’s charity by playing golf every day in 2010. Their progress can be followed on www.puregolf2010.com
